I posted in another forum also but I figured this one was hitting close to home too so here I am. I am 31 years old and I suffer from Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Arrythmia/Palpitations, Syncope and it goes on. I am on a slew of medications. For years I have always been told my ANA was positive and I met some of the criteria for Lupus but I not enough for a complete diagnosis. He thought maybe someday in the future or maybe even never. I hoped for never.
I had been having worse back pain than usual so I asked for an MRI to see if I had any bad discs or anything and luckily I did that because they found a lesion. Now they are doing a complete workup for MS or CNS Lupus. They say it looks more like Lupus because of the area the lesion is located. The inflammation on my spine is in my lumbar. I am going for another MRI for my brain and cervical to make sure no other lesions have developed.
I am always nauseas, dizzy, I have tremors and tingling sensations. I get little jolts like tics throughout my body. I am very weak. I just started physical therapy a couple of weeks ago but I am very nervous. I get nervous that it could be both.
Any response would be helpful about MS or Lupus like what was the process you went through when you were first diagnosed and how did you feel if you dont mind me asking? My mind has been in a million different directions. I am not a patient person. The results cant come fast enough for me. Fibromyalgia is horrible enough to add something even more severe just sucks!
